RadTown USA is a virtual community showing a wide variety of radiation sources and uses as you may encounter them in everyday life. Explore this interactive, virtual community of houses, schools, laser light shows, construction equipment, flying planes, and moving trains. Each place in RadTown helps you learn about radiation sources or radiation- treated items you might f
Visualizing inequality, envisioning a future
This activity uses mapmaking and geography to plot the presence of the MDGs in communities, as well as visually represent development inequalities. The maps made in this lesson may be created using chart paper and markers, or using the Class Maps feature in TIGed Virtual Classrooms.
NOAA: National Marine Sanctuaries
This webpage features information on the marine life and habitats of the marine sanctuaries in the United States. Photographs, videos, and information on conservation efforts, protection, management and heritage of the sanctuaries are included. Users can click on the marine conservation sanctuary of their choice to take a virtual journey. This webpage is sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
We have used visualization software to create 3-D virtual environments at six NeMO sites. Each virtual site is based on a real location at Axial Volcano, but the virtual views allow you to see the seafloor in a way that would otherwise not be possible. And you can visit any time! Each virtual site has a fly-through movie, a panorama, and links to video clips.
